Steering noise

My mate bought a 318 e30 the otherday, and it has started making a sreeching noise when you turn the wheel to full lock, left and right. It does it when stationary and when moving. The fluid looks fine!! Any ideas what it could be.

Could it be a belt slipping, but then why would it only do this at full lock.

HELP!!

It sound like a belt to me it will be worse on full-lock because that’s when the pump is under its heaviest load

^^Like he said. It's pretty much normal for it to do that at full lock when you are standing still. I wouldn't worry about it, especially with a car 15+ years old. There shouldn't be that many times when you do that anyways.
